2022 FVRC Spring Thunder Regatta

March 18-20th, 2022


FVRC will be offering a Vintage & Historic (V&H) Driver School for new and experienced drivers. Designed to educate and prepare both new and experienced drivers, “Ground School” will be conducted in the morning followed by water training and laps in one of the club’s trainers under the supervision of your instructors.

Become familiar with the Vintage and Historic concepts and regulations, get to know the equipment, the APBA regulations by which we operate, drivers’ etiquette and much more. Experience first-hand the thrill of rounding the course’s turns at controlled speeds. Both outboards and inboards will be addressed, the differences associated with both defined, and each student will have the opportunity to drive one or the other.

Of special note, there’ll be a rare opportunity to quiz and interact with a cadre of world-class drivers for their experiences and tutelage.

Seats are limited, so sign up immediately for this unique and invigorating experience. One will graduate with confidence (both on and off the course), an understanding of Vintage & Historic flybys, and a respect for the history we share.
